Woodworking Open Shop
This class is run as an open workshop in which students design and construct projects of their choice. Expert instructors provide individual guidance on design, joinery, construction and finishing, based on individual student needs, and students draw upon each other’s expertise. Students often stay for multiple semesters, enjoying the camaraderie of the shop and progressing to more ambitious projects over time. Many fine pieces of original furniture and cabinetry have come out of this class.
Note: Projects must be kept to a manageable size. Beds, large tables, shelving units and the like put too severe a drain on our limited storage space. Students compelled to make large projects must speak first with an instructor and obtain permission. Our most common solution to these challenges is to ask students to work on parts in Woodworking Open Shop, then assemble larger elements and the final piece through private lessons, outside of regular class time, at a cost of $65/hour. Please inquire for details.
